About This Event

A special meditation retreat for health and social care professionals
with Kirsten DeLeo

 How can we be present for others and at the same time maintain our inner balance and strength?

Take time out, away from everyday responsibilities and stress, to re-connect with your inspiration, joy and sense of purpose. This retreat offers you the space and the opportunity to strengthen your inner balance and enhance your skills.

Kirsten will lead us on an exploration of the power of mindfulness and compassion to reduce stress, prevent and heal burn-out, and to foster a greater sense of awareness and happiness.

Weaving together contemplative meditation, scientific research, and hands-on experience, you will gain a practical framework to enable you to stay present with those for whom you care; empowering you to respond to the deeper sources of their suffering while remaining open, spacious and centered in yourself.


The retreat will be held in the Spiritual Care Centre meditation room, a bright ecumenical space with beautiful views.


Delicious two course vegetarian lunches, with soup and bread in the evenings. Cooked with love at Dzogchen Beara, using homegrown and organic ingredients whenever possible. Tea and coffee.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
